This residency site places a large emphasis on pediatric sedation, pediatric general anesthesia, interceptive orthodontics, oral surgery, in-patient and out-patient pediatric medicine, craniofacial clinic, special patient care, community outreach, and advocacy. The site is affiliated with two local hospitals -- a level one trauma teaching facility, Tampa General Hospital, and a regional medical center, South Florida Baptist Hospital.
